Back in April I saw this ad in the paper and exclaimed, “This is the perfect Wardrobe for Narnia!”  

At one time I had thought of buying an actual wardrobe and cutting the front off to serve as the door, leaving the rest of it inside Narnia with a hole cut in the back for the kids to go through.

Yeah, right, try to get that to pass inspection!

But I know that any carpenter worth his salt could recreate this wardrobe door with pieces of trim from Lowes’ applied to a basic double wood closet door.

It will be less labor than sawing apart a wardrobe; it’ll be cheaper; we can adapt it to the size of our doorway; I can have the fun of staining it–and none of the guilt for destroying an antique.

So that’s the plan.
